Favorite Pic

This is my favorite picture of my kids. We were at the beach and they were watching the waves together from the balcony. It reminds me of a sweet time. The sad thing is it was the weekend before September 11, 2001. (the date on the photo has the day before the month... I never could figure that out on the camera) I am sure that is why the memories are that much sweeter.

Enjoy your blog hopping.

Have a happy day.

Yard Sale find

Today I am participating in Southern Hopitality's Thrify Treasures

I want to show you a gorgeous lamp (at least I think so) I got at our Firehouse's yard sale. The town fire dept is moving into a new safety center and held a yard sale to de-clutter. I found this lamp for $15. I didn't even try to haggle because I thought it was a great deal at that. The shade is a silk type material. The lamp itself is quite heavy and it even came with a florescent light bulb. So, it is an Earth friendly find too.

Here is the rider up close.

The best thing is that I had wanted something like this. As, my daughter and I both like horses. She rides and I attempt to stay on But have never found anything in my price range.... cheap. This totally fits the bill.

As I was leaving the sale proudly carrying my buy a gentleman stopped me to ask about it. He told me he owns a store and the lamp would sale for much more in his store. If I hadn't been so enamored by the lamp I probably could have sold it to him for a profit. But it just made me more proud of my find.

Hop on over to Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality and check out the other treasures.

Thanks for visiting and have a happy day.
